El Camino Hospital's board just got bigger. In a move intended to help the hospital board make better decisions, the health care organization finalized the appointment of three new directors on June 7.
All three new board members -- who will join the hospital board but not the hospital district board -- boast lengthy and diverse resumes.
Cohen is a medical doctor with multiple master's degrees in business and public health has experience in risk management and regulatory affairs; he is currently working as a professor of anesthesia and perioperative care and medicine at the U.C. San Francisco School of Medicine.
Davis is also a medical doctor with a master's degree in public health. He is the chief medical officer of Avivia Health -- a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kaiser Permanente -- and the medical director of national sales and account management at Kaiser.
Tandon holds a doctoral degree in biochemistry. She has 20 years experience serving on the boards of pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms and worked as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley for a decade.
"Drs. Cohen, Davis and Tandon bring years of clinical and business expertise that will further strengthen the board's expertise -- not just in finance, quality and policy -- but also add a new dimension to our knowledge in hospital and physician relations, managed care, population health and disease management," said El Camino Hospital District Board Chairman, John Zoglin, in a statement. "Beyond these areas, their understanding of the dynamic health care market in Northern California will help us continue providing high-quality care for our patients in a rapidly changing health care environment."
